Premiere: Thurz ‘High Castle’
It’s been a minute since the world has heard from Inglewood rapper Thurz. 2011 saw the release of the U.N.I. co-founder’s first solo debut, L.A. Riot, a high concept nod to his hometown. 2012’s 517 W Queen Tape, a mixtape featuring Thurz’ smooth raps over big electro-tweaked beats followed. But since, the L.A. emcee has been crafting away at his sophomore LP Blood On A Canvas, recently teased with a 3-part documentary.
On his latest track, “High Castle,” Thurz keeps things close to home spitting over a West Coast chill wave beat provided by the worldly Christian Rich.
“With a passion that is right here, let me put your heart in my ear,” he raps on the track. Listen below.
“High Castle” hits iTunes on Tuesday, April 1. The track is also featured on the limited edition Red Bull Sound Select/Record Store Day Split 7” that will be available at participating Record Store Day retailers on April 19.
